Just leaving Cape Verdes and already named! Models say it will hit the northernmost Lesser Antilles in 6-8 days (but what do they know)
Well, if TD 2 wasn't worth watching, I think this one is.
LOL, I hope so because I've been guilty of the same.
Over the last few seasons I watched every cloud and wave that rolled off the west coast of Africa. I remember one humongous system that was coming off the west coast of Africa last year. I was sure it was going to bring a massive hurricane. It petered out to nothing.
After that I tracked all systems coming in from the Atlantic all systems yet stupidly ignored Omar because it was well west/south of us-- it turned around and came back and I didn't even know until hours before it hit!
This season I do check weatherunderground every few days but until something is really a couple of days away, I'm not going to get excited.
chefnoah: You can claim you were busy in the kitchen cooking up...what? A nice chocolate mousse?? Then we will all be over. 🙂
The "Invest" deal is something they just came up with, like last year? In the good old days you didn't have to fret until something was a named storm. Now we know about waves, invests and TDs. TMI!! The blogs on Weather Underground Tropical Weather are very good- you can learn a great deal from the masters of meteorology.
